Demonstrations in Egypt
There were recent demonstrations in Egypt by moderate Egyptians of several faiths against the brutal killing of Coptic Christians by murdering radical Islamics this past week. The Big Pharaoh has had a few posts on the matter and at the protest he attended snapped pictures of the above symbol. It has a rich history in Egypt since it dates back to early 20th Century desire by Egyptians to be free of foreign rule. I copied the image into Photoshop and cleaned it up, unfortunately could not properly clean up the Arabic script at the bottom; so instead of offending someone just erased it. Besides I think the symbol itself speaks clearly.
